Do you ever feel like sometimes your life is a just a whirlwind?  Not always in a bad way.  Just that you don’t seem to have time to sit and relax and do nothing?

I literally can not tell you the last time I sat down to watch TV.  I get up in the morning, get ready, get HJ ready, bring him to daycare, go to work, work all day (don’t even leave for lunch anymore!), get home, get dinner, pick up/start laundry/play a little, get ready for bed, get HJ in bed, work on blog, go to bed.  Repeat.

Even my weekends, while fun, I haven’t had a break.  The last few weekends, I have had so much going on that I just want to hit pause.  I just want a day where I can lounge at HOME.  I want a night where I am not racing to daycare to get there before they close.  And on that note, why am I the last one there everyday?  Am I the only parent who works until 5pm and can’t get there until 5:20?  I want a night where I can just relax and enjoy my sweet little nugget.

I feel like life is moving in fast forward right now and I just want to slow things down a bit.  I want to breathe.  Take it all in and enjoy it.

It’s not every Friday night that you race home to get ready for a date.  And then you have such a fabulous date that he keeps you up WAY past bedtime because you both completely lost track of time.  That leaves you tired for a Saturday of enjoying a beautiful fall day at the pumpkin farm.  That leaves you even more exhausted for a Sunday where you need to run into work before heading to Iowa City for a fun night at a hotel pool.  That left you totally exhausted for the hotel that happens to be right next to a frequently used railroad track.  That made you appear completely disheveled at your son’s follow-up appointment in Iowa City (that went great), that caused you to knock your cold coffee all over your son’s shirt right before said appointment.  Which caused your son to let the doctor know you spilled coffee on him.

And also, Siri is a little bitch who sucks at directions.  She brought me to 2 non-existent places in Iowa City.  I could tell she was just laughing at me while I was a huffy, impatient mess.  She even messed up telling me how to get to the hospital.

But I was also relieved that HJ’s appointment went so well, that the worst part of my day was directionally challenged Siri.

My last few weeks have been a blur.  I have neglected email, my phone currently has 9 unread texts and numerous unanswered.  I feel like my house is a mess and I don’t understand how my son keeps losing cups.  Seriously.

But on a side note, I took this super cute picture for HJ’s birthday party invites.  I realized I really needed to get on that this week since the party is in just a few weeks (his first birthday was completely planned 2 months in advance…now I am trying to throw something together).  And I have something planned every weekend until then, ahhhh.


It’s a construction theme party that will be at home.  He hasn’t decided if he wants girls to come or not, because he isn’t sure if he likes them or not.  Which is making the guest list fun to attempt.  But seriously, how cute is my little nugget.  And what games should they play??

And how many unanswered questions did this post leave about my life?  Ahh, vagueness.

Let me know what you want to hear more on, I could really use some post prompts!



2 Thoughts on “Whirlwind

    That is one cute little boy! How about just having normal kids games but putting a construction twist on the name, be a little creative with them. The kids just love playing games.

  2. post prompts. How about stories from the days when you were a wedding planner? (I think that was you) 😉 What was it like, what parts did you like/ didn’t like. More memorable moments/ any unusual locations for weddings, How did you get started in it, or maybe a post on your “dream job” if you could do anything and have it pay the bills what would that look like and why ? Just a couple of ideas off the top of my head. We currently have a writer staying w/ us in our B and b suite , she and I were talking about this last night ( jobs)
